THE WIND WHISPERS MARY.
Somewhere up in the Shetlands, on an island which is likely to be Windy, is a little croft cottage, and inside, Mary is busy working. She makes pin badges and decorations from traditional hand framed Fairisle knitting. She also makes hand bound sketchbooks, with chrisp white paper and a woolly covers. All now avaliable at Prick Your Finger. Books are £15.99 and badges and decorations £4.50.
And here is Jimi Hendrix singing 'Wind Cries Mary' in Stockholm in 1967. (Stockholm was the nearest we could find to Shetland)
